Default I finally got the chance to ***** it up!

Well here she is, in all her glory. My 1987 LE. Not bad for free huh? Please feel free to dish out any comments you may (and i'm sure will) have. If you start to wonder the badges are missing because i'm in the process of painting them. More pics when i'm done.

















Thanks!

The car has great potential. I'd say the first things you should do are.

Tune Up
Straighten the body up a bit
Rims (hubcaps if your on a budget)

Once thats done I wanna see pics of it again

I love it.


If you get bored and have the time, Get the rear tires turned around on the rims, It'll look better.

Brings back memories of my LE minus the 50mph T-Bone incident.

Ya i love the cluster. Lol. I am going to turn the tires around when i get the new fronts, and i'm getting them all balanced. I just put new pads and rotors on it today, and investigated a scraping noise in the rear (broken adjuster spring in the passenger drum) and my sagging in the rear (BOTH springs= shot). *Sigh* it'* coming along though.... I just got my O2 sensor in the mail though! Yes i know the interior is nice now, but that'* almost 2 days of straight cleaning. He spilled coffee multiple times on the passenger floor, and he had doge in the back all the time. Covered in hair. All the windows were like coated with film, it hadn't been washed in probably a year or more. It didn't have a radio either. Of course i fixed all that AFTER rebuilding the tranny that he fried. Oh and the tires had the belts showing through and the oil was a quart and a half low and completely black.
